The 8 (truly) best 3D printers of 2018 – a comprehensive comparison

The best product for beginners is unquestionably the FlashForge Finder 3D. While it is very affordable, it still provides good print quality. It is also highly compact – which could be an important consideration depending on your particular setup and type of usage.

The best semi-professional model is the Dremel Digilab 3D45. Belonging to a higher class of product, it offers very good print quality (even for highly detailed objects).

The best 3D printers retailing for under 500$

3D printers retailing for less than 500 euros are generally geared towards beginners. While these printers are not precise enough to produce industrial prototypes, they are perfect for taking your first steps into the world of 3D printing without spending much money.

You will, however, want to avoid very inexpensive 3D printers which are often of poor quality – making them, for all intents and purposes, unusable.

You should also be aware of the fact that models in this price range often have quite a limited print volume and limited print resolution.

Avast vs AVG: Which is better? 20$ more for the same thing?

While the paid versions of Avast and AVG use the same antivirus engine, they differ greatly in price: AVG retails for 99.99$ whereas Avast retails for 119$. Why is there such a difference in price between these two applications? We decided to find out…

On the one hand, Avast Ultimate charges 119.99$ for protecting a single computer. On the other hand, AVG Ultimate charges 99.99€ for protecting an unlimited number of devices. Since both of these programs are built around the same antivirus engine, what could possibly justify the difference in price between them? Which one should you choose?

Avast is a very popular brand in the USA, namely because of its free antivirus protection service: Avast Free Antivirus. Two years ago, this Czech software developer was bought out by its main rival in the world of free antivirus protection, AVG (which is also a Czech company). While both of these brands have preserved their respective visual identities (different user interfaces), technically, they both rely on Avast’s antivirus engine.

One of the biggest played titles of recent times would be the Player Unknown‘’s Battleground. Even though this game has conquered the hearts of many, we do have the face the fact that it is rather poorly optimised whether it is being played on a PC or an Xbox One. Although from time to time there was a considerable improvement, it has still not reached our so-called “flawless” level of gameplay settings. Sometimes even game crashes can occur and glitches here and there that spoils the overall beauty of the game.


But you don’t have to fret much as there are a lot of in-game settings that you can tweak to get the most out of the game and have an edge during your gameplay. When you put in so much effort during all your matches, you can give a bit of your valuable time for the game’s settings too which can boost your performance to a big extent.
